Like most professionals, lawyers owe a duty to their clients and are expected to perform their given tasks with a certain level of competence. When a lawyer fails to do this, it can be considered legal malpractice, which is seen as a breach of duty and an intentional civil wrong. Whether or not a lawyer is held liable will be based on his or her level of professionalism as compared to how other reasonable lawyers would have acted in the same situation. It is a plaintiff's burden to prove that malpractice has occurred and to prove that he or she actually suffered some type of compensable damage as a result. To learn more about the elements of a legal malpractice claim, refer to the information contained in this section.
